The calendar year of 2020 for Devils hockey begins with a team they have not yet faced this season. The opponent is run by a man who made the Devils the Devils and are easily the more tolerable of the two NYC teams.

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils at the New York Islanders (SBN Blog: Lighthouse Hockey)

The Time: 7:00 PM ET

The Broadcasts: TV - NBCSN; Digital Audio - The Devils Hockey Network

The Song for the Evening: One of the more interesting bands from 2019 was Issues. They came out with Beautiful Oblivion which shows that you can have a pop sound and sentiment and merge it with elements of metalcore, R&B, and post-hardcore. This is the title track, which is the last one on the album.

The Rules: The rules remain the rules regardless of the fact that this is the first game of 2020 for the Devils. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams), and all about the games itself. Just as importantly, let’s respect each other. There’s no need for drama or being unwelcoming of your fellow Devils fan. This is a gamethread, let’s focus on the game. Thank you for reading. Go Devils!
